County commission sues to stop suburban school districts

(WMC-TV) - The Shelby County Commission filed a lawsuit late Tuesday afternoon to stop the creation of municipal school districts.

Voters in all six Shelby County suburbs are scheduled to head to the polls on August 2 in order to decide if the cities will form their own school districts to avoid the merger with Memphis City Schools in 2013.
